Headers (Sender names) are case-sensitive i.e. ABCDEF and abcdef are two different sender names and can be registered separately.
The Header selected should match your entity name. If the header name is different:
For Videocon: Please attach a document/image showing the website link, trademark certificate or any other document/image proving the relation between your entity name and your requested header.

Best Practices For Creating and Using Templates
We’ve listed below the best practices for creating and using templates to send SMS in speedsms to avoid any disruption in your SMS traffic:

Message content, category and template ID must exactly match the templates approved in DLT platform
The message content you have added in speedsms should not have extra/missing spaces or new lines.
All templates added in speedsms must be added with message category and template ID.
All approved templates without template ID/message category in your account have been rejected. You can access all your rejected templates in your account. Please add DLT template IDs and message category for templates you wish to use and apply again in your speedsms account.
DLT variables
The syntax of variables is different in DLT and speedsms. Please use the relevant syntax when adding templates in each platform. See how to add templates in speedsms here.
Eg: An OTP template will look like “Your OTP is {#var#}” in DLT platforms and “Your OTP is %%|text^{“inputtype” : “text”, “maxlength” : “6”}%%” in speedsms
The maximum character limit for a DLT variable is 30 (as mandated by operators). If you wish to send speedsms shortlinks, please use 2 DLT variables ({#var#}{#var#}).
We recommend testing your added DLT templates with a single send to your mobile number before scheduling a bulk send: Log in to speedsms > Click Send > Click Send Text Messages > Select the template you want to use from the dropdown > Select the Sender Name you added for this template in DLT > Add your phone number in the Paste List > Send Message.

DLT Registration & speedsms – Where and how can we help?
Mandatory new regulations: Please note that the new TRAI regulations have been enforced by the telecom operators and there is nothing speedsms can do to push back the implementation. Without the necessary sender names (headers) approvals at any one of the DLT portals, your SMS will be blocked by telecom operators.

There maybe certain vendors allowing transactional traffic under common headers but this is against TRAI regulations (not to mention the inferior customer experience). We recommend getting your own sender names/headers by registering on DLT portals!

Approvals stuck at DLT portals: The DLT portals are maintained and supported by respective telecom operators. speedsms  staff has neither visibility nor control on why and where the entity (PE) registrations are stuck. The respective DLT portals will directly communicate with you over email regarding approval status, any missing documentation etc. Please check your emails and provide additional docs as needed.

We have limited “read” access to your basic details only after your KYC verification is done and after you select IMI Mobile as the Telemarketer.
Process changes: We have detailed our understanding of the registration processes and provided a step-by-step guide on how to register and get headers approved on 4 portals (Videocon, VIL, BSNL, Jio) in this webpage. However, we observed the processes may go through small changes – we will keep the information updated on this page. Once again, SMS providers and aggregators (such as speedsms have no control over these changes.

Registration fees: The fees imposed by different DLT portals is also outside our control. We are only providing you with the available options (where the processes are clear to us) and encouraging those who can to register on multiple portals for speedy approvals.

Approval timelines: Due to heavy rush at the operator portals, we have been informed that the approval queues are constantly increasing, implying increasing approval timelines and SLAs.
